Let’s not let this idiot on the right here have any joy and beat these fuckers. This picture was taken in 2014.

As you can see from the lineup posted below, Brett Lawrie moves back over to second base tonight, as Juanfran mans third, making it a real day for defence at the hot corner, as Carlos Santana is there for the Clevelands.

John Lott tweets that Colby Rasmus says he hopes he can be back in the lineup in about three days, but that the hamstring he tweaked last night feels about the same as then still.

John Gibbons says that he doesn’t think Rasmus will need a DL stint, according to a Gregor Chisholm tweet.

Mike Wilner adds that Gibbons says he won’t skip anyone — *COUGH* Happ *COUGH* — in the rotation, despite an off-day on Monday.

Chris Toman tweets that Gibbons says Kevin Pillar earned his promotion, though the manager noted Anthony Gose wasn’t eligible for a recall not related to a DL stint, as it’s been less than 10 days since he was last optioned down.

Toman adds that Pillar says he’s “more prepared” than he was when being recalled last year, adding, “I’m going to go out here and make it impossible for them to send me down.”

Lott tweets a link to his story from the National Post on Brett Lawrie, who is “doing it for the boys” when it comes to playing second base.

  1. Fat Juan makes me want to touch myself.

  2. He gets so many borderline pitches because he can plunk them in wherever he wants. His FB is like 89 but its a thing of beauty.

  3. Good fuckin game.

  4. Girardi just got ejected…god I wish we could get some more Manager-Umpire shouting matches

  5. Yanks and Red Sox both losing. Nice.

  6. Come on Miggy

  7. I was at an alumni thing tonight, turned out to be an open bar so I stayed longer than intended. Missed a pretty good game by the sounds of it. Another winning streak?

  8. MIGGY HOMERS! EVERYONE TO O’S HANGOUT, PRONTO!

  9. Tommy Hunter is such a shitbag

  10. WonDer if the Baltimore troll shows back up…lol

  11. Timely pitching, batting and defense, this game was clutch for the Jays. Janssen makes impact as closer, maybe that is going to stabilize the bullpen, so Jays can look to add some bench depth (Gose?).

  12. Yanks get’n crushed, dido for the Sox…its a beautiful day.

  13. Twins walk off, excellent

  14. Does anyone know off the top of their head the last time the jays led their division after at the end of May? Or something like the latest we’ve had the division lead since ’93?

    • In late may of 2008 I was at the 4th game of a sweep vs the Chisox ( may25). We were 27-14 and in first place at tehtime with Scutaro at ss and rolen at 3b. Eckersley sais we would not be in first by June 15. Sadly, he was correct

  15. Jose Fernandez has UCL tear and is more likely getting Tommy John surgery. What a blistering shame that such a talent like his has to go through this. Makes me sad as a baseball fan in general.

  16. Things are tough in Filthadelphia. First they get swept by the Jays, and now:

    Phillies manager says he was poisoned by burger from Citi Field Shake Shack

  17. Fukin Rays with 2 in the 9th off that hat fucker rodney. Win 2-1. FUKKKKKKKKKKK

  18. I would be more worried about Seattle taking a wild card spot from the Jays then the Rays to be honest…

  19. Here in vegas with my tacky red Jays Canada Day cap on. Went to the sports book to bet on the jays winning the world series. Guy from Baltimore laughed at me.

    I told him I’d make fun of him but the crime and drug problem in Baltimore is no joking matter. He thought that was hilarious and we got drunk together and watched basketball. Good times.

  20. Van Gaal left Stekelenburg off? That’s a surprise.

  21. Love my Chief Wahoo Indians hat, don’t care what any of the haters say.
